This is a great recipe to bring to your next get-together. Whenever I bring this, people are ga-ga over it- I think because it’s so easy! I got this from my friend who also brought it somewhere, and everyone was asking for her recipe! Well, she shared it with me, and I did tweak it a little though essentially it’s the same. And oh, by the way…you are going to freak out with her tip to keep your apples from browning…mind.blown. Here’s what you do:
Toffee-Crack Dip & Apples
1/2 Cup of brown sugar
1 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
2 TBSP half and half or whole milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 (8oz) block of softened cream cheese (I used the low-fat kind)
3/4 Cup of Toffee bits (found in baking section of grocery store)
1 package graham crackers (around 10)
4-5 large apples
1 cup pineapple juice (canned)
Caramel sauce (bottle of your favorite at the store)
Here’s what to do:
- Beat the softened cream cheese, vanilla, half and half, and sugars with an electric mixture in a bowl on medium until smooth.
- Add in the toffee bits and stir until combined.
- Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
- Peel and cut 4-5 apples in to wedges/slices. Add to about a cup of pineapple juice in a bowl and toss so apples are well coated, to prevent browning. Set aside until ready to serve.
When Ready to Serve:
Before serving, drizzle a little caramel sauce and a sprinkling of toffee bit on top of the dip.
Drain the apples from the juice, and serve with the dip, alongside of graham crackers or vanilla wafer cookies.
Isn’t it an awesome tip to soak the apple slices in pineapple juice before serving?! My kids love these slices just plain too! I used to cover them in cinnamon-sugar so they’d keep in their lunches and lemon-soaking was too tart- this is so great and it doesn’t change the apples’ consistency or taste- if anything it makes them a bit sweeter! Yum.
